The Pizza Delivery States of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Witch Queen Annie Holstadt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 14.054 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The tiny, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,625 trillion IM Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 257,942 IM Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The serf suggestion box would work better if more serfs were literate, dreams of replicator technology have been dashed following a ban on 3D printers, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 9,845th in the world and 1st in Mount Olympus for Most Authoritarian, with 4,338.93 milliStalins.
